BACKGROUND

 

From a young age, I was aware of how people with chronic illnesses can suffer. My mother was diagnosed with Crohn's disease before I was born and endured excruciating symptoms for 15 years. 

The standard conventional medicine approach to Crohn's was as inadequate then as it is now - prescribe steroids to lessen symptoms and wait until the intestines need to be removed surgically.  

Scientifically valid, effective supplemental and nutritional therapies were scoffed at by her doctors as not worth pursuing. 

The number of patients with chronic illnesses under my care who have successfully gone into symptom-free remission is a constant reminder of how ineffective a one-dimensional approach to patient care can be.  

For over a decade I have specialized in treating those who have been told that there is no treatment and no alternative but to eventually rely upon pharmaceuticals and get used to chronic disease. 

 

With this experience in treating the most sensitive patients, I have gained insight into treatment methods that efficiently address the underlying causes of a wide range of conditions affecting every age group. 

There is always something that can be done. 

PHILOSOPHY

 

Headlines abound that promise 'Gut-health,' 'The One Supplement To Heal Your Joint Pain' and 'The Diet To Heal Your Autoimmune Disease' - giving the impression that you just have to do or buy one thing to heal.  

My new patient appointments are an hour long because it's all important.

 

Your diet, environment, emotional health, supplements, family history, and patient history since birth - it's all relevant when we are unraveling an illness that, most likely, took decades to create. 

The testing and nutritional medicines you receive will be unique to you as a patient.

 

I do not have a 'one size fits all' treatment plan because you are unique, and as you heal, we will adjust your treatment based on your renewed health goals.
